Planting Instruction
  • How To Sow: Choose a well drained site in full sun. Best sown into seed trays for subsequent transplanting or, after frosts, sow direct where to grow in rows 30cm apart in a well prepared seedbed. Sow seeds 5cm apart and to a depth of 1cm. Later, transplant to 50cm apart.
  • Seedling Care: Keep seedbed or trays evenly moist during the germination period of 14-21 days. Apply McGregor's FruitMax 2 weeks after germination for healthier plans and a maximum crop. Protect your vege garden from snails and slugs with McGregor's Snail and Slug bait and from White Butterfly with McGregor's Derris Dust.
  • Hints and Tips: Roma can be grown on the ground with no support or it can be staked. Tomatoes prefer a warm climate, with ample spacing to encourage high yields. Watering the soil around the plants helps minimise fungal problems such as blight.
